The coordinated terror attacks in Brussels has unveiled new information regarding the assassination of a key jiahdi leader in Afghanistan as a terror suspect who was arrested by police in Brussels after a dramatic stand-off at a tram stop is believed to have previously been jailed for helping to assassinate an Afghan leader just days before 9/11.
The suspect has been identified as Abderaman A who was shot in the leg at the tram stop in Schaerbeek because he was carrying a rucksack police believed contained a bomb.
Massoud was the arch rival of the Taliban group and was holding the last strategic stronghold in northern Panjsher province as he was assassinated in a suicide attack during an interview by militants who had disguised themselves as journalists.
He was killed shortly before the deadly terrorist attack on New York and Washington and shortly after he paid a visit to Brussels where he issued warnings regarding the terror attack plots by al-Qaeda terrorist network.
In his speech in European Pearliament in April 2001 Massoud “warned the US government” about bin Laden as he was on a diplomatic trip to Europe seeking financial support for his cause from the EU and individual countries.
The UK-based MailOnline newspaper reported today that the latest revealations was made as the investigation continued into Tuesday terror attacks in Belgium at Brussels Airport and a metro station in the city, which left 31 people dead.
The report further added that passports found on Mr Masood’s killers were linked to a Brussels-based militant cell run by Tarek Maaroufi.
Ameroud was handed a sentence of seven years when he went on trial for his part in the assassination at a court in Paris in 2005, according to the report.
Massoud was conferred the title of national hero following his assassination by the Taliban militnats in a bid to take control of Panjshir province which has always remained a stronghold against the foreign invasions.
